Bryce Canyon is nothing short of spectacular. From Dead Horse Point, to Needles, and the Island In The Sky, we had enjoyed plenty of spectacular vistas, but Bryce blew them all out of the water. In fact, it took us longer to walk the half-mile between Sunrise and Sunset Points along the Bryce Canyon rim, than any of the other 125 miles we hiked in the Southwest during the rest of our trip, and this despite the fact that the trail connecting them is flat and paved. We had purposefully avoided looking at photographs before seeing the canyon ourselves. Nature truly outdid herself with Bryce; we had to labor to pick our jaws up off the floor so that we could actually get on with our hike inside the canyon.
